This clip from Mercedes firing up its 2017 Formula 1 car for the first time may be short, but it’s getting us pretty hyped for the new season.

F1 engine fire-up videos can be pretty dull and boring, but Mercedes has become the first to release theirs for 2017 and it’s been done well.

Trying to give as little away as possible, Mercedes takes us behind-the-scenes as its new car fires into life for the first time.

So, grab some headphones and have a listen to the new Silver Arrows and its beastly V6 Turbo power-unit.

It’ll be officially launched with drivers Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas at Silverstone on the 23 February.
